If you don't want a background of where i'm at right now, skip to the bottom for my questions.
I turn 17 in a few days, and I am not happy with my body. I have been lifting, training, and eating well for a year now, and thanks to you guys have made some good changes to my body. I got some decent strength gains, mainly in lower body. I had some strength but I was really fat.
I am 6 ft 1, I was 226 lbs but I dropped to 190 within 2 months (me currently) after I was sick of being fat. I went from 26 % body fat (according to a scale) to 17 % (according to same scale), so I am happy with my progress there. Unfortunately, at 6 ft 1, 190 lbs 17 bf%, im not exactly ripped, nor am I anywhere near big.
I know if I keep trying to lose fat, I may reach a point where I can see my abs, but I will be very small and weak. I want to get stronger still, but I am not happy nor will I be happy with the body fat I have on me, no matter how strong I am. I have been fat my whole life, im sick of it. So im in a crappy spot, where I really want to add size and strength but hate having this fat on me.
Right now im doing 5/3/1. I have been reading around trying to find if there is anything out there (supp wise) that will help me reach my goal of low bf%. I am normally a patient person, and approach weightlifting the same way, but I really want to get to a low bf % and still be getting stronger while im doing it.
Anything I use would be only used until I reached the level of leanness I want, then I would go back to using nothing but food and try to maintain my leanness and improve muscle mass without supps. I don't use anything right now, other than Surge, Flameout, and once in a while a protein shake. I read up on Carbolin 19, and it seems that would help.
Seems like a dumb question since every teenager I know takes steriods or testosterone boosters (im not kidding), but i'll still ask it. First of all, would Carbolin 19 be safe for a 17 year old to take?
Next, does Carbolin 19 work as well as advertised? Will it really help me lose body fat while still gaining muscle? Once I get to the body composition I want and I stop taking Carbolin 19, will I be able to keep my leanness and strength levels the weeks after, provided I have my diet and training in check?
Finally, would I need to take the full 4 capsules per day, or would 2 per day work fine?
